Hair Anatomy 101

Hair is simple in structure, but has important functions in social functioning. Hair is made of a tough protein called keratin. A hair follicle anchors each hair into the skin. The hair bulb forms the base of the hair follicle. In the hair bulb, living cells divide and grow to build the hair shaft. Blood vessels nourish the cells in the hair bulb, and deliver hormones that modify hair growth and structure at different times of life.

Hair growth occurs in cycles consisting of three phases:

  • Anagen (growth phase): Most hair is growing at any given time. Each hair spends several years in this phase.
  • Catagen (transitional phase): Over a few weeks, hair growth slows and the hair follicle shrinks.
  • Telogen (resting phase): Over months, hair growth stops and the old hair detaches from the hair follicle. A new hair begins the growth phase, pushing the old hair out.

Hair grows at different rates in different people; the average rate is around one-half inch per month. Hair color is created by pigment cells producing melanin in the hair follicle. With aging, pigment cells die, and hair turns gray.

Carpe Diem!

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this

Hair Care

Beautiful Hair with Little or No Shampoos and Conditioners Japanese women are famous for the beauty of their hair well into old age. and the fact is that shampoos were not even available in Japan until 1930s.

CLEANSING AND CONDITIONING

  • SEAWEED: Cleanse and Condition Hair

Seaweed hair cleanser comes in powder form. It is mixed with water to produce a light gel-like mixture which is used to cleanse hair. It used to cleanse and conditions hair and supplying essential nutrients to hair and scalp, chemical-free.

Seaweed is abundant in calcium, magnesium and iron. It is also a rich source of iodine, the lack of which according to many studies causes the thyroid gland to under-produce thyroxin, resulting in dry hair, thinness, poor hair growth and hair loss.

Reducing use of shampoos or going shampoo-free has many obvious benefits. Shampoo strips hair of sebum, the oily substance we naturally secret to nourish and protect our hair and scalp.

To compensate for the resulting loss, scalp produces too much sebum, leading to the need to wash hair frequently, and necessitating use of conditioners and other aftercare products.

Protecting

  • CAMELLIA OIL: Seal Hair Shaft to Prevent Moisture Loss

The most common use of Camellia oil in Japan is for conditioning hair after bathing, as it works best applied to hair when it is damp.

Camellia oil not only softens hair (because of its very high Oleic fatty acid content) and makes it more manageable, but it also protects hair by forming a barrier against environmental pollutants.

Also, it  seals the hair shaft preventing moisture loss, and can help treat damage from perms and coloring and repair breakage and split ends.

Grooming

Combing your hair properly distributes hair’s natural oils to the rest of your hair. It also keeps hair from tangling and improves its texture and health.

Proper grooming makes hair more manageable and easier to keep clean and wash.

  • “TSUGE” WOODEN COMBS: Polished, Seamless Teeth Glide Through Hair Without Snagging

Japanese wood combs are handmade and polished tooth by tooth from Tsuge (boxwood,) one of the densest, hardest types of wood.

In contrast to synthetics, wood teeth have microscopic pores which pick up and re-distribute scalp’s natural sebum and any oil you apply in a thin, even layer, promoting natural shine and gloss.

The smooth, seamless teeth do not snag and damage hair. Also, wood does not generate static electricity, resulting in less frizz.
